What Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process by which a will is proved to be valid and decedents’ debts are paid and assets distributed after they die. State laws direct the probate court in how to distribute the deceased’s estate, so it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law. Probate is also required in all wrongful death cases.
